As you know we have this one, has been outside the last two winters, although in a sheltered position...

Yes, in your garden is where I saw it for real originally, then in Abbey, but the price! This one was good value.

Have just pruned some of the underneath branches, which had died....due to the wet weather, but it still looks good.

I intend to put mine in the garden when there is room.

My brother uses it for a hedge and it's stunning when it flowers, according to my father. I've never visited his place and never seen the hedge, therefore I googled it to see how it looks like. Here are some images I've found if you're interested:

Oh, Wow, TM, that is some spectacular hedge. Thank you for the link. I was going to try to grow mine up the fence, as high as it will grow, bit tender, likes acidic soil, so we will see.
